Beauty Box: Intelligent Nutrients Pureluxe Conditioner

When it comes to winter skin care, we all have a few tricks up our sleeves. Maybe you use a heavy duty moisturizer, maybe you slather your your lips in Vitamin E (highly recommend this!), maybe you use a honey + milk face mask (this too!) or maybe you're just addicted to hand cream

As important as all of this is, it's equally important to remember your poor hair which is just as exposed to the elements as your skin. 

Moisturizing your hair and scalp is important, so a good conditioner is key. Here's the scoop on a natural conditioner that might set you back a few buckaroos but is beyond worth it:

Product Name: Intelligent Nutrients Pure Luxe Conditioner

Price: $20

What's It For? Conditioning the hair, body wash, shaving cream...

Level of Difficulty (ie how difficult is it for the average bear to use): Very easy

Will it change my life?  Probably not, but it will make your hair super shiny and smell amazing! (Editor's Note: So yes, that's a life changer.)

Skincare

It may come as a shock to no one that I'm not usually one for beauty. If you've ever seen me in person, you'll know that my hair often resembles a doll whose owner doesn't own a brush.

Anyways, lately, for whatever reason (though probably caused by this video on Into The Gloss), I've been super into skincare and have been buying + trying different products: 

Cleansers :

Moisturizers:

  • Avene Thermal Spring Water - a purified water spray which I only tried after watching said Into The Gloss video, but I have to say it leaves you feeling clean and relaxed, and who doesn't want that?
  • Simple Vital Vitamin Day Cream - which I also use at night; don't hate
  • Leontine Natural Lip Gloss - handmade in Asheville, NC and all natural. Leaves my lips feeling supa' smooth/soft

And some extras for the cheap seats:

  • Sea Salt Soap - aside from the amazing packaging, this soap really is great - it lightly exfoliates and smells like the ocean. Yummmmmm.
  • Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin Nutrition Shampoo - I've somehow just discovered Kérastase and could not be more obsessed. It's (a lot) more than I'd usually pay for shampoo at £13 / $20, but it's changed my hair. Right after I wash, I full-on feel like I'm in a shampoo commercial, Pantene-style. After using this, everything else will feel like pointless (with your hair, not in life).
